The court was hearing the plea under Section 56 (2) of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015 read with Regulations 52(4) and 55(2) of the Adoption Regulations praying to appoint the adoptive father (the biological mother having agreed to give the child in adoption to her second husband) of the person of the minor female child so that the latter is entitled to the legal status of biological daughter with all therights of succession and inheritance and for all purposes allowed by the law. On behalf of the petitioners, it was urged that the 2nd petitioner had married the 1st petitioner and is leading a happy life. The minor child is also a part of this family and she has recognised and accepted the 1st petitioner as her father. The 1st petitioner has come forward to adopt the minor child and the 2nd petitioner, the natural mother of the minor, is also desirous that the 1st petitioner is legally recognised as the father of the minor child. Denying the relief, Justice P. T. Asha observed that “it cannot be granted for the simple reason that the said late V.Venkatesh was the biological / natural father of minor Sahanaa and on the date on which the birth certificate was issued by the Authorities the said Venkatesh was very much alive and it is he who has been described as the father of the minor child in the birth certificate issued by the Authorities”. The Single Judge proceeded to observe that the adoption does not sever the relationship of the minor with her biological father, the only exception being when the biological father himself renounces his right as father of the minor and consents for the child to be taken in adoption by the adoptive father. “Even in such cases, it is my view that the status of being the biological father does not change. It is only the status of an adoptive father, custody and maintenance of the minor that changes hands”, the Single Bench asserted. The Court opined that while it is not in dispute that the 2nd petitioner as the biological / natural mother of the minor is empowered to give the child in adoption, but she cannot deprive the child’s right to have the name of her biological / natural father in her birth certificate. The bench appreciated that the registration of the births is governed by the provisions of the Registration of Births and Deaths Act, 1969. Sections 8, 9 and 10 mandates that the information of the births and deaths be given to theAuthorities by the persons listed. The Act also makes provision for a delayed registration and the procedure is encapsulated in Section 13 of the Act. Section 15 talks about the circumstances under which an entry in the register of births and deaths can be corrected or cancelled. This Section would provide that a correction or cancellation of the entry in the register of births and deaths could be made in the following circumstances:(a) When the entry is erroneous in form or substance; and (b) The entry has been fraudulently or improperly made. On the occurrence of the above, the application could be made to the Authorities seeking correction or cancellation by giving the reasons. The said Section further provides that there shall be no alteration to the original entry and the correction can only be made in the margin with the Authorities signing the same. “Therefore, from a reading of Section 15 it is clear that the original entry cannot be corrected / deleted and the incorporation of the new details can be made only in the margin”, noted the bench. The Court further reflected that the State of Tamil Nadu in pursuance of the powers vested under Section 30 of the Registration of Births and Deaths Act, 1969 has notified the Tamil Nadu Registration of Births and Deaths Amended Rules called the Tamil Nadu Registration of Births and Deaths Rules, 2000. “In the case of adoption the form which is prescribed is Form 1-A. Serial Nos.4 and 5 in the said form relates to the name of the mother and father respectively. Serial Nos.7 and 8 relates to the name of the adoptive mother and the adoptive father. Therefore, the request by the petitioners to delete the name of the biological / natural father from the original birth certificate is legally not sustainable particularly when the rules clearly provide for incorporating the name of the adoptive parents separately in Column Nos. 7 and 8 as adoptive parents and not as the natural parents”, remarked the bench. The Single Judge was of the view that the biological father is no more and therefore it cannot be said that he severed his ties with his daughter. Even though the biological / natural mother has given her consent for the 1st petitioner stepping into the shoes of the father by filing this petition, this Court cannot permit the substitution of the name of the 1st petitioner as the biological / natural father of the minor.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Harry Potter heroine Emma Watson is currently the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, starring as Belle in Disney’s eagerly anticipated live-action Beauty and the Beast and even says she wouldn’t mind apparating to Broadway for a bow. The two busy bees managed to sit down together during HeForShe Arts Week, discussing everything from compelling “him to include women in the sequel” to sorting the characters of Hamilton into Hogwarts Houses.

Kessler Karain was involved in an altercation with a fan after Reed and his partner Webb Simpson lost to Hideki Matsuyama and C.T. Pan in the morning four-balls.Karain admitted he had “had enough” of the hostility shown towards Reed, who has played the role of pantomime villain this week after arriving in Australia on the back of accusations of cheating during the Hero World Challenge.The caddie told Fore Play: “Riding on the cart, a guy was about three feet from Patrick and said, ‘you f—ing suck.’ I got off the cart and shoved him, said a couple things, probably a few expletives.”Security came and I got back in the cart and left. I don’t think there’s one caddie I know that could blame me.”Woods, who went out first on Sunday before taking over his captaincy duties, felt alcohol had played a part in the incident and asked for a more respectful approach on the final day.Asked how the atmosphere compared to a Ryder Cup, the U.S. captain said: “Well, I think it’s different. There aren’t as many people at this venue because it’s so small, a lot of bottlenecks.”There’s obviously some yelling. There’s people who have had a lot to drink and have gone over the top.”I’ve heard it. I’ve been in the groups playing when it has happened, and I’ve been inside the ropes as a captain witnessing it.”Bipartisanship is part of playing in team matches, whether you’re home or on the road, it’s part of the deal. As long as the fans are respectful, all we ask is for them to be respectful.”Hopefully they will be excited [about] Sunday and the matches and be very respectful of all the players.” Tiger Woods and Ernie Els name the Singles matches for the final session of the 2019 @PresidentsCup . https://t.co/3cQSOd77vP— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) December 14, 2019Woods’ Internationals counterpart, Ernie Els, felt the galleries were “pretty quiet” compared to New York in 2017 and that the Americans should “take it and move on.”The South African said: “I’ve played in many Presidents Cups. I’ve played in the U.S. many times. If you look back at New York and how these players were treated in New York, this crowd is pretty quiet.”I mean, we just get treated the same wherever you go as an away game, there’s some heckling going on and we all know that, and you prepare for that, and that’s just the way it goes.”We shut up and we get on with things. That’s what we did in New York. So it’s part of the game.”And I’m with Tiger; I’m against heckling. I’m against crowds being disrespectful to the players, but it happens. We as professionals, we move on.”I think Tiger is one of the ultimate professionals that’s ever played the game. I’ve played with him where he’s been heckled in U.S. Opens and a lot of other places. He’s taken it on the chin and he’s moved forward. He’s been an example.”Same has happened to me. It’s happened to a lot of players. But I must say, this Aussie crowd, OK, they got a little bit boisterous this afternoon with a couple of beers, but which crowd doesn’t? You take it and you move on.” Tiger Woods accused the Royal Melbourne crowd of going “over the top” after a wild third day at the Presidents Cup.The Internationals headed into Sunday’s singles with a 10-8 advantage over Woods’ United States team, but the day was notable for a crowd disturbance that led to Patrick Reed’s caddie being suspended for the rest of the event.
Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki left, and Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade, second from right, talk as they swap jerseys after an NBA basketball game in Dallas, Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019. (AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez)Charlotte – It was a family affair for Dirk Nowitzki in what was likely his last-ever NBA All-Star appearance. “My wife is here, my friends. The whole crew is here one more time. I was on the stage for the last time, so it’s been great.My brother-in-law is here; he came to support,” Nowitzki said of NBA All-Star Weekend held in Charlotte, North Carolina. “So I had fun. I look forward to closing out this weekend out on a high. Then go back home and finish the season strong.”The 40-year-old Nowitzki kept a busy weekend in Charlotte – serving as coach of the World Team for the Rising Stars Challenge – in which he coached teammate Luka Doncic – participated in the 3-point contest and participated in the All-Star Game on Sunday night as part of Team Giannis.The NBA paid homage to the League legend, with large signs and posters in hotels and all over the downtown area near the site of the Spectrum Center where All-Star festivities took place.He scored 17 points in the 3-point contest but did not make the finals. He won the contest in 2005-2006. In Sunday’s All-Star Game – he drained 3, 3 pointers in 4 minutes – a performance that had the bench and crowd at Spectrum Center on its feet. He finished with nine points for Team Giannis during their 178-164 loss to Team LeBron.During the 3rd quarter he and Dwayne Wade – who has already announced his retirement from the League this year -were presented with honorary framed All-Star jerseys.After the game, Dirk was swamped by players, fans, media and more are offering handshakes, hugs and well-wishes. He and they knew it would probably be his last All-Star Game.“I wanted to just play a few minutes and hoist up a three and that’s exactly what happened. The first one, I was a little deep. But it’s the last time on this stage, I’m going to go for it, and it went in,” said Nowitzki, who was the oldest All-Star in attendance in Charlotte.“The second one I thought, Let me step back a little more and see what happens, and it went in too. It was a fun all around weekend for me. It was a pleasure to compete with these guys one more time on this stage. We got honored in between the third and fourth quarter and that was emotional. It was great weekend for me.”Nowitzki acknowledged that when things quiet down, he’ll take time to reflect. “Yeah, I think all that is going to be emotional once I sit back and get some time to think. But this weekend, I was just out there competing,” he said.“It was fun and the whole week was great. They had me running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Friday, I was coaching. Saturday, I was shooting [in the 3-Point Contest]. And then I was competing. It was fun. ““I’m going to soak it all in. I think I’m going to get more emotional later when it is all said and done.”Nowitzki said he appreciates the support and love from fans as well as athletes and knows decision-time is coming. “The fans have shown me a lot of love already on the road, even though I obviously haven’t announced that this is going to be it. I want to see how my body feels the last couple of weeks. If I get to see any improvement, if it’s still fun, and I guess we’re going to make that decision later.”[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGyDc9HglrA?enablejsapi=1&origin=https://nnpa.org]

The Nelson Selects overcame a ton of adversity to capture the gold medal at the Slurpee Cup this past weekend in Kamloops.Jaden Dyck scored the only goal in the final to power the Selects to the U18 Boy’s title with a 1-0 win over Chilliwack Attack.“I was especially pleased with this result given that Kamloops is always a high-end, difficult tournament and our group of boys had never previously won a medal there,” said Nelson coach Kerry Dyck.Dyck said the squad banded together after suffering a loss of players due to injury.“We suffered some adversity, with a combination of other commitments and injuries resulting in us being down to only 11 players, and hence no subs, for the final game, which determined the gold medal,” he said. Nelson opened the tournament with a 1-0 victory over European Football School.Milo Baranyai-Sheppard scored the only goal in the game for Nelson.The Selects then bounced Mission elite 3-1 on goals by Aaron Abrosimoff, Jaden Dyck and Josh Fogal.The lone blemish came against zone rival Kootenay East as the Cranbrook based squad defeated Nelson 1-0. Kootenay East finished second in the tournament.“The boys really dug deep and rose to the occasion, playing what I felt was their best game of the year, with a solid performance from all 11 and a great team effort,” Dyck said of the final game.Hunter Lloyd, a 16-year-old keeper from Christina Lake, was in goal for the entire tournament for Nelson.Lloyd was thrust into the starting lineup after the Select regular keeper was lost for the season due to a torn rotator cuff.“Hunter, though younger, is a fantastic keeper and we are really appreciative of him playing with us,” said Dyck.
